Hi! This is my first blog post!
I have been an artist all my life, in particular a mural artist for the last thirty years. I specialise in ‘trompe l’oeil’, although I will maintain that trompe l’oeil is, in fact, high quality realistic painting. The fact that ‘trompe l’oeil’ is usually labelled as wall art, is, in my opinion, unfortunate! I prefer to think that my style as a painter may be described as ‘realism’ and that I am known as a mural painter by chance!
This painting on canvas is realistic…. but is it ‘trompe l’oeil’?
